Vocoder: Sticky wickets.

Keep your cool, keep your powder dry
Take a pull but try not to get high
Don’t get caught trying to hit the big shot
Wait for it, wait for it, take it slow
Wait for it, wait for it, take it slow
Wait for it, wait for it, let yourself go Wait for it, wait for it, let yourself go

Sticky wickets early in the morning Sticky wickets early in the morning
Sticky wickets last thing at night Sticky wickets last thing at night
Sticky wickets tossin’ and a-turnin’ Sticky wickets tossin’ and a-turnin’
Sticky wickets, stand up and fight Sticky wickets, ]stand up and fight

Show yourself, show them who’s the boss
Lose yourself but try not to get lost
Try not to get lost
It’s no good playing on the back foot It’s no good playing on the back foot
Wait for it, wait for it, take it slow Wait for it, wait for it, take it slow
Wait for it, wait ‘til it’s time to explode! Wait for it, wait ‘til it’s time to explode!
